Welcome to the SSCCC new website! 

California Student Aid Commission Student Member

The Student Senate for California Community Colleges is calling for nominations for one of the two student seats on the California Student Aid Commission (CSAC). The governor appoints members of the commission. Two students serve on CSAC, serving staggered two-year terms. This is the first year the SSCCC is sending student appointments to the governor from a list of recommendations put forward by the Student Senate for California Community Colleges. Student organizations from CSU, UC, and the independents also forward names to the governor for consideration.  

Any student enrolled in a California community college with a minimum of five-semester units, or its equivalent, and enrolled in a community college at least one semester before his or her appointment may apply for the student position on the California Student Aid Commission. More information about minimum and desired qualifications can be found in the nomination policy linked below.  

Candidates for nomination must submit an online application and current resumé.  A letter of support from the candidate’s local student body association is desirable.  

Nominees will be interviewed by an SSCCC Ad hoc committee in June with final selection by the SSCCC Board of Directors also in June.  All candidates will be notified of the outcome of the nomination process.  More details about the timeline are listed in the nomination policy below. Thank you for your assistance in identifying worthy and qualified candidates.
